The City of Burlington is inviting artists to apply for the 2023 Burlington Arts and Culture Fund (BACF). This is an annual grant program that provides $70,000 of total available funding to local artists, multicultural groups and arts and culture organizations to foster creativity and enrich how Burlington residents experience and engage with arts and culture.
Applications will be accepted until noon on Friday, Feb. 3, 2023 and will fund projects from April 2023 to March 2024. Successful grant applicants will be announced at the beginning of April 2023.
To be eligible for BACF funding, applicants must be located in Burlington and must be:
• An incorporated not-for-profit arts and culture organization or a charitable arts and culture organization;
• An individual artist or arts and cultural collective (defined as three or more individuals) that exhibit high achievement in arts and culture programming;
• A multicultural group that fulfills a significant role in the Burlington community through the arts and culture.
Grants will be evaluated in part by a peer assessment jury for artistic merit and by City staff for program merit and strategic initiative, citywide and community impact and economic impact. If you are interested in being part of the peer assessment jury, please contact the Arts and Culture Council of Burlington (ACCOB) at firstname.lastname@example.org by Feb. 1, 2023.
To learn more about this fund, the jury opportunity and the application process join City staff and arts and culture professionals for a virtual information session on:
